Idea[edit]

Nordic Wikimedia affiliates (i.e. Northern European affiliates) have been meeting up on bigger Wikimedia conferences for years and also there have been several collaborative activities (e.g. Yearbook), but during discussions in 2017 it has been more and more clear that this regional collaborative could use an in-person meeting to support regional cooperation and peer mentorship in a more effective and functional way.

During discussions so far 7 key thematic areas for collaboration have been highlighted:

  1. Board training
  2. Organizations
  3. GLAM
  4. Education
  5. Tech
  6. Advocacy
  7. Communication

These will form thematic backbone for conference programme.

Location[edit]

Sweden has been approved by members of Nordic Wikimedia as an ideal location for organizing this event for its central geographical location and for notable experience that local chapter Wikimedia Sverige and its staff has in organizing international events (e.g. Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017).

Pre Conference Meetup[edit]

There will be a a Meetup during Wikimania 2018 for involved affiliates to discuss some of the preparations of the Stockholm meeting.
